Adelaide airport have been talking about a direct flight to the US for years but the american airlines want nothi...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Adelaide airport pty ltd and the state government must be disappointed with the lack of interest from international airlines. If you look at how many international airlines there are flying to Perth it really is embarrassing how Adelaide has struggled in this area in recent times. Air Asia pulled ou...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

You do have to wonder who is running the maintinance department at DPTI... Or who has input into the approval of trees and plantings across major infrastructure projects. With NRAH, I was surprised that they put so many plants into the garden beds. They put in three times as many plants than what w...

It’s a shame it’s not another 10 levels.
Not in my backyard.

Taller buildings should be in the CBD, not on the river torrens. Have a look at how Brisbane has been ruined
by building massive buildings on the riverfront. It looks hideous.

Re: Adelaide makes Top 10 for 2019 EIU most liveable cities index

It's all relative isn't it? You can live well in most places as long as you have a job, a roof over your head (you own or can afford) and are not starving. The rest are bonuses of 21st century living. Cheers When you consider the cost of property in a city like Sydney or Melbourne, someone with an ...

Nice angle! Almost looks like a Melbourne street scene It's a bit rich to make a comparison such as this between Melbourne and Adelaide. We've been waiting 35 years for this which really is a sad reflection on our politicians and the South Australian government. It doesn't take 35 years for Melbour...

Will the crane be going up higher ?

If not then the core is very close to topping out.

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

Drove past on Anzac Highway yesterday. The whole front facade has been completely removed and the building is unrecognisable. I'd say once they have completed any further necessary preparatory work full demolition will be very fast, as it's basically just a shed without the facade. Seems a bit odd ...

Who's the hotel operator for this ?

I am not sure why people are blowing loads about this going ahead, when it appears that the hotel
doesn't have an operator.

Not yet. Second proposal advertised this week without a da. Might be a new trend. Not going through the process unless they have enough interest.

After all the years waiting for a new tallest, I think this and Realm topping out are going to be a little anti-climactic. :lol: Surely there will be some sort of event or celebration for this (even if it's beers with the boys). It's been over a decade in the making. I remember being a 16 year old ...

Seems to be lots of advertising for this one. They are having a real crack.
Anyone heard what's happening with this one ?

I reckon it might be dead. As Smithy85 said they were really pushing hard earlier in the year but
it seems to have gone quiet.
